Shaylee Flax traveled from Wakeeny to attend Fort Hays State University this fall. She plans to further her education at Kansas State and brings a strong desire to learn to The Animal Hospital. After growing up with three dogs, Tanner, Dakota and Xazier, she gets satisfaction from knowing she is helping animals and building relationships with them every day at the hospital. As much as she loves animals, Shaylee is grateful for the opportunity to learn from a team that she reports works well even under pressure and where so many people with diverse experiences can come together all in the name of practicing great medicine. After a day of shadowing at The Animal Hospital, Shaylee enjoys spending time with her family, pets, and friends.


Kelby has been with The Animal Hospital for 5 years now! She came here with previous veterinary office experience and has really found her stride managing the day-to-day workings in the office. Kelby’s favorite parts of her work are hanging out with cows, making friends with our shyer patients and working with the people attached to those animals! She is well known for her sense of humor and get-it-done mentality by our clients and team. Kelby can be found all over the clinic answering questions, working cows, caring for patients, organizing endlessly and giving our clients a little sass!
